Vail Daily letter: Ignorant generalization

Mr. Castellino’s commentary (Letters to the Editor, Thursday’s Vail Daily) is an incredibly ignorant generalization about conservatives and their alleged inability to appreciate and preserve our natural surroundings. His comments reflect the mindset of a self-righteous, delusional bigot. Mr. Castellino states: “I have never had the opportunity to see a conservative in the wild standing in awe and reverence of nature’s beauty.” For this to be true, he either has asked everyone he encounters in nature whether they are conservative (and received a “no” in every instance) or he has the unique ability to sense a conservative when he stands next to one. As the noted English essayist, poet, and dramatist Joseph Addison once said, “A man must be both stupid and uncharitable who believes there is no virtue or truth but on his own side.”
